Established with passion and vision, Evansville Day School is the only independent school in the region. As an independent school, we are free to design unique programs and experiences focused on what each student learns and, more importantly, what he or she becomes.


  • Rigorous academic standards. Independent schools nurture intellectual curiosity, stimulate personal growth, and encourage critical thinking. Students benefit from being around other talented students who similarly love to learn and seek advanced opportunities.
  • Small classes and individual attention. Independent schools have low student-teacher ratios that encourage close relationships. Day School’s low student-teacher ratio of 9:1 allows us to know our students, teach to their individual needs, and support their passions.
  • Excellent faculty. The best teachers gravitate toward independent schools because they have more autonomy within their classrooms. With fewer students to work with, independent school teachers how each student learns and what interests and motivates them.
  • High percentage of college admission. 100% percent of Evansville Day School graduates go on to college and almost two-thirds pursue advanced degrees.
  • Education for the whole child. Independent schools nurture each student’s intellectual ability and curiosity as well as their personal and social growth and civic conscience. Opportunities extend well beyond the classroom to athletic competitions, artistic pursuits, and leadership experiences.
  • Global community. Independent Schools value diverse and vibrant student communities and welcome and respect each family. At Evansville Day School, 30% of the student body identifies as an ethnic minority, and 25% of students come from one of ten other countries. 
  • Parent partnership in education. Independent schools promote regular communication among students, parents, and teachers to ensure everyone is working toward the same goals for the student. Our parents prioritize their children's education above anything else. 
  • Schools with values. Independent schools vary greatly. You can select a school whose philosophy, values, and teaching approach is right for your child.
